Before Anthony Lynn was head coach of the Los Angeles Chargers, he bounced around the NFL as a player after being an undrafted free agent out of Texas Tech.

There were even Anthony Lynn sports cards in the early '90s, and he looks almost unrecognizable in this photo from his time with the Red Raiders.

This image is from roughly three decades ago, so it makes sense that coach Lynn has changed a bit since then The picture is certainly a representation of the time, sporting the Fresh Prince-esque hi-top fade.

Lynn's best season at Texas Tech came in his junior year, when he totaled 1,034 yards and nine touchdowns. His senior season, unfortunately, was cut short by a knee injury, which led to Lynn going undrafted in the 1992 NFL Draft.

Mostly a special teams contributor, Lynn bounced around the NFL before retiring in 2000, due to multiple neck injuries. He played a reserve role on the Denver Broncos' back-to-back Super Bowl champion team.

Lynn and the Chargers are in a tricky position heading into 2020, not truly in a rebuild but having some serious uncertainty at quarterback. This could be a make-or-break season for his future with the Chargers.
